Description

Discover a new passion with this rock climbing initiation course in the Briançonnais! Enjoy the area’s incredible cliffs while learning new skills with the help of a professional mountain guide.

This is the chance you’ve been waiting for to discover this adrenaline-filled sport. I have to warn you, though: it can become addictive!

The Ecrins are the perfect place for your first ascents. Great quality rock and mild weather make for an unbeatable combo!

Contact me in advance if  you are visiting the area during Spring, Summer or Autumn and we’ll plan for a great day together. I can take a maximum of 8 people on this course, so you can bring your family and friends along!

You can also choose between a half day and a full day, depending on your wishes and availability. During our time together, we will go through basic security rules and learn some of the key moves that will allow you to climb safely. Balance and efficient body positioning will be the day’s key concepts!

I discovered rock climbing at a very young age and decided to turn my passion into a full-time job. Thus, I became a IFMGA certified mountain guide in 2004 and, since then, have been taking people out to explore the region and discover and enjoy different outdoor sports and activities.

I can promise a fun-filled learning experience that you and your family and friends won’t ever forget. This rock climbing initiation course might be your first step towards becoming a true rock climbing fan.

Join me on this adventure and discover the joys that rock climbing has to offer. I’m always excited to get to share my passion with others and look forward to a great day together. Rest assured: you won’t regret a minute of it!

Mountain Guide

I was born in 1990 and I am based in Toulon. I am a high mountain guide and photographer. I started loving climbing during my youth, and I later discovered alpinism. This took me to visit many paths in the Alps, as well as expeditions. At the same time, I became a high mountain guide when I was 24 because I loved it and wanted to share my passion.
I like to travel and I offer my services in the French massifs (Mercantour, Hautes Alpes, Chamonix) and abroad (Switzerland, Italy) all year long. I will do my best to enrich your journey with my experience and to guide you to reach you dream summit.

Avec Robin, j'ai eu la chance de faire l'ascension du Mont-Blanc depuis le Nid d'Aigle. Il a su s'adapter à ma demande qui était de faire l'AR en une journée. Chose parfaitement exécutée. De plus il propose le prêt du matériel. Je recommande vivement, en plus d'être professionnel et pédagogue il est super sympa !

Robin was everything you want in a guide: competent, congenial, and careful though seemingly casual. He taught my daughter to belay and allowed me to lead. He was wonderfully patient in letting us figure out a problem rather than tell us how to solve it. We had a wonderful Day 1 tackling short pitches, as I had requested. Day 2, however, was a terrible disappointment. I had asked that we spend it on a multi pitch route, and had high hopes for a challenging day out as my daughter had told Robin on Day 1 she would not be joining us. Since the forecast included rain later, Robin and I met at 7:45am. But the route, while multi pitch, was more walking/scrambling than climbing, so that we made it back to our cars in less than 2 hours. I was shocked to learn we were finished for the day. Given what I paid, this was poor value. I would not be able to recommend Explore-Share as a result.

Nice climb. Run into a bad weather at gorges du Verdon. Was able to change to another climb near Cassis. The view is pretty. Explore share response is quick.
